Android 10 based Open Beta 3 for OnePlus 7/7 Pro goes live with tons of fixes (Download links inside)

OnePlus has again made the headlines with the launch of its new and improved OnePlus 7T Pro smartphone. However, there are no significant changes from the OnePlus 7 Pro but you get a macro lens, more battery, and some extra camera features.

Besides, looking at the track record of OnePlus where it sends out all the new features from its newer generation smartphones to the older ones, OnePlus 7 Pro will definitely get the new features from the OnePlus 7T Pro pretty soon via an update.

OnePlus 7T Pro

One thing to notice is that the OnePlus 7T and the 7T Pro smartphones run on the latest Android 10 with OxygenOS 10.0. And probably this is the most important difference that I could see that would matter to the masses.

However, in a recent development, OnePlus has announced the Android 10 based Open Beta 3 for the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro devices. This new beta update brings in a lot of new features and enhancements for both the devices.

OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro

Note that the Open Beta 2 on OnePlus 7/7Pro was rolled out the previous month and it brought in some bug fixes and optimizations over Open Beta 1.  

As already mentioned, the Android 10 Open Beta 3 for the OnePlus 7/7Pro brings in quite a few enhancements and upgrades for the overall performance of the devices. Below is the official announcement for this new update and the changes that it brings in:
